      Preflop raise should be $0.50 (4BB+1BB for the limper).
      On the flop you're against 2 opponents and there is an overcard on the flop, so c/f all the way unless you hit anotehr Jack.

      There is a reasonable chance that one of your opponents is holding a King.

      Basically you should c/f flop with second pair against 2 opps.HU you can cbet /push with one overcard if that overcard is not an A.
      We need some more info about opps to play JJ profitably.K is possible holding but not that often as Ax or low pp.The BU opp limps/calls preflop so shouldn`t be AK,KK and maybe not KJ( if he steals blinds often).BB opp can have looser range.Preflop you are in front more than 50% and on flop you can be in front either- about 45-50% .And your remaining stack is 1/4 less than pot size, so imho you can push here because of break even EV+FE+ pot committed= +EV decision for me.Not safest way to play JJ but should be +EV in long run.

      But what if both opponents check on flop and turn is plank?

      Check/fold.
      People can easily slowplay anything here.

      Hello Backcushion,

      1. Typically* bet $0.5 pf
      2. Typically* check/fold flop and so on.

      * - I mean if you have no specific reads.

      Don't think I would push the turn in both checked to me. I still have no position.


      btw. I like your contribution, dellievas and DeKuip. Keep up the good work!

      It's one of the best ways to improve my SSS-skills :D
      The more different kind of hands you see, the better it is.
